Clinton Ignores Questions About Father of Orlando Shooter Attending Her Rally


Hillary Clinton ignored questions on Tuesday about whether she knew that the father of the Orlando shooter was going to attend her rally in Kissimmee, Florida on Monday.

Reporters asked Clinton about Seddique Mateen–father of Omar Mateen, the terrorist who killed 49 people at an Orlando nightclub in June–attending her campaign event as a supporter. Clinton dodged the questions from reporters after delivering remarks about the dangers of the Zika Virus to medical staff and other health representatives at the Borinquen Medical Centers of Miami-Dade.

Mateen, a Taliban sympathizer, attended Clinton’s rally on Monday and was seated behind the Democratic nominee. He at first refused to answer questions regarding the rally, but hours later WPTV ran into him and they asked about Clinton.

"Hillary Clinton is good for United States versus Donald Trump, who has no solutions," Mateen told WPTV.
